Hello,

So my question is.. I am now playing the eye of the trainer satellite and about 5 min ago I tried to register to the main event without winning a ticket in the satellite(without having a main event ticket) and I could. So how does this work? It's some sort of mistake or I don't have to play the satellite?
Who gets a ticket to the main event(I have no such ticket in my balance) and who has to play the satellite?

Thanks,
Dan

a better question is if I am playing the satellite but have already registered by paying $1.10, what happens if I win the satellite?

do I get a ticket, so I must remember to unregister to main and re-register using the ticket?
do I get $1.10 instead of a ticket?
do I get nothing?
do I get $1.10 T$?

rethorical question, as i busted out of the satellite.

Hi Dan,

You do not need to win a ticket in the satellite to play the main event, it is simply one way to get into the tournament (for free). Any PSO member can buy directly in for the cost of $1.10 if they did not win a ticket or even didn't play the satellite.

Cheers,

Chris

Thank you. I tough it was more private or something. I didn't realize I was playing for the $1.10 and not for the ticket. Silly me.

Did you see the hand in which Chewme1 was knocked out? It's incredible.



How about that for an action flop? Everyone's got a piece of it! Overpair vs top pair vs set vs overset vs flush draw, and one of the sickest runner-runners you'll ever see.

Congrats to Courtice67 for picking up the $500 bounty.

I tweeted to Chewme that I was shoving/ calling any pot he was playing. I can't really blame any player for taking a shot in this hand as it's +EV getting involved with whatever rags you have.

Hey Arty,

Don't remind me I was the one holding the best hand until Courtice67 hit runner runner... & to think he was only a 3% dog OTF.

Well played everyone... Congrats again to Courtice67.

I told him the same thing in chat during class, but then I chickened out


Chewme's been like my 'tourney tutor' - I don't have much time to watch too many tourney vids, but the ones I've had time for, have been very helpful. I learned how to resteal from watching his vids

So then after submitting that hand to HA the other day, I felt like he must have been so appalled and disappointed to see how I really play tourneys ... like a big donkey that I am


I didn't want to play that way against him, so I didn't even sign up for the tourney.


It's kind of a fun idea to have the chance to play against the trainers, although with such a big bounty on their heads, maybe there's not so much of a chance to play the trainers in these games after all. Hopefully Chewme had fun nevertheless
